As part of Spinal Health Week
2017 (May 22-28), chiropractors
are raising awareness of chronic
back pain and encouraging
Australians to seek help
Chronic back pain is a national
issue. According to the Australian
Institute of Health and Welfare,
one in six Australians are suffering
from chronic back problems –
that’s an estimated 3.7 million
people dealing with the physical
and psychological effects of
chronic back pain.
The Chiropractors’ Association
of Australia (CAA) is using Spinal
Health Week 2017 (22-28
May) as an opportunity to bring
attention to chronic back pain and
encouraging people to seek help.
“More and more Australians
are experiencing debilitating back
pain, limiting their ability to engage
in an active, healthy life” said Dr
Andrew Lawrence, CAA National

which is usually resolved within
a few weeks, chronic back pain
is a long-term health condition
lasting for three months or longer.
Making lifestyle adjustments and
seeking professional advice from
a chiropractor or other health
professional can help alleviate
chronic back pain symptoms.

the relationship between the
spine and nervous system without
the use of surgery or drugs.

spinal function, collaborating with
other health professionals where
For chronic back problems,
chiropractors use a variety
of treatments such as spinal
manipulation or manual therapies.
They also offer advice on self-
management through exercise
and lifestyle changes.
“While it is not always possible
to identify the cause of chronic
back pain, a sedentary lifestyle
and poor posture are risk factors”
explained Dr Lawrence.
Simple measures such as
incorporating walking into your
daily routine can reduce the
severity of chronic back pain
symptoms and improve overall
well-being. Improving posture
can also help relieve strain on the
spine and improve overall health.
The best way to make lifestyle
changes is to seek advice, start
gradually, be consistent and build
capability over time. Check with
your local CAA chiropractor or
other healthcare professional
before undertaking exercise to
make sure it is appropriate for
your specific needs
